Clarke's Commentary on Numbers 27 :16

The Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh - See the notes on Numbers 16:22.

Barnes' Commentary on Numbers 27 :16

The God of the spirits of all flesh - An acknowledgment that man, who is but flesh (compare Genesis 6:3), is of himself helpless; and "lives and moves and has his being" in God Acts 17:28. The words are suitably employed here to introduce an entreaty that God would not leave the congregation without a guide and leader, and in Numbers 16:22 as a preface to an intercession that the whole people should not suffer for the sin of a, few.

Wesley's Commentary on Numbers 27 :16
